Navy Bean Soup, originally uploaded by jenib320.
Finally remembered to soak some beans overnight so I could make Navy Bean Soup. It turned out great! It was super easy and really hit the spot on a cold day!

Navy Bean Soup

1 lb Navy beans
32 oz Chicken Broth (best to use reduced sodium kind!)
1 Hamhock
1 small Hamsteak (cubed)
1/2 an Onion
1-2 stalks of Celery
2-3 Carrots
1-2 Bay Leaves
1-2 cups of Water

1. Soak the beans in water overnight.

2. Combine beans, hamhock, chicken broth, water and bay leaves in a stock pot. Bring to a boil. Let simmer covered on low for 2 hours, checking often.

3. Remove and discard hamhock.

4. Chop onion, celery, carrot and hamsteak and add to the soup. Let simmer for 30 minutes to soften veggies.

5. Remove bay leaves and serve! Enjoy!

This tastes great with a grilled cheese on the side or with bread to dip in it!
